re: Poker & OMAHA?!?
I love Omaha!! It has much more action and it's less boring than Hold'em, and therefore makes me think a bit more. But it's a bit trickier, you can't trust a flush or a straight, and you certainly need to doubt every 2 pair or set in a wet board.
For that reason I usually enjoy Omaha in low-entry tournaments or freerolls
, I wouldn't even think of trying it with real money
, even though I tend to do pretty well in said tournaments (same for Stud). First time I played Omaha I thought it was exactly like Hold'em, only that you could chose 2 of the 4 cards.
So I got a straight, went all-in, and lost to 2 pair. I took a screenshot of the hand and sent an e-mail to PokerStars support saying that there was a bug in the software and they should look into it and maybe close Omaha tables out of respect for players.
I was then told I was supposed to make my hand by choosing only 3 cards from the board.
